Morning Thanks

Garrison Keillor once said we'd all be better off if we all started the day by giving thanks for just one thing. I'll try.

"We sing the mighty power. . ."



We sing the mighty power of God
that made the mountains rise,


that spread the flowing seas abroad



and built the lofty skies.



We sing the wisdom that ordained
the sun to rule the day;


the moon shines full at his command,
and all the stars obey.


We sing the goodness of the Lord
that filled the earth with food;


he formed the creatures with his word
and then pronounced them good.


Lord, how your wonders are displayed,
where'er we turn our eyes,


if we survey the ground we tread


or gaze upon the skies.


There's not a plant or flower below
but makes your glories known,


and clouds arise and tempests blow
by order from your throne;


while all that borrows life from you
is ever in your care,


and everywhere that we can be,
you, God, are present there.
